NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Paducah Kentucky 
947 PM CDT Sat Mar 28 2015 


Update... 
issued at 947 PM CDT Sat Mar 28 2015 


Minor update to reflect interaction of winds, clouds, and 
temperatures around western limb of surface high moving through 
the Ohio Valley. 


Slight warm advection scenario impacting southwest quarter of weather forecast office 
pah forecast area (southeast mo), slowing the slide of drier and 
colder air, except for the northern pennyrile region of west 
Kentucky and southwest Indiana. Could see the maintenance of 
steady dewpoints shortly after midnight as flow become more 
southeasterly and increases across the entire County Warning Area by 12z Sunday. 


Slowed down any opaque cloud cover until near Sunrise East of the 
Mississippi River. This will aid in better radiational loss, 
despite increasing southeast flow. 






&& 


Short term...(this evening through Monday night) 
issued at 258 PM CDT Sat Mar 28 2015 


High pressure tonight with clouds over semo clearing. Light winds 
should yield lows at or just below freezing...though temperatures may 
level off late tonight or rise a degree or two as winds become 
south-southeast. Sunday morning...increasing clouds...with rain shower chances 
spreading southeast into the area in the afternoon. The chance will 
continue through the evening as it progresses from northwest to southeast across 
the area with a surface front and modest middle level energy. Favored 
the slightly slower consensus of the ec/NAM/Gem vs the faster GFS 
with the overall progression. Never the less its mainly an 
afternoon and evening event...essentially gone after midnight 
Sunday night. Return dry weather Monday through Monday night with 
high pressure back in control. Given we aren't issuing frost/freeze 
products yet...no products will be mentioning the just below 
freezing temperatures tonight...at least not until it's considered a 
hazard through agency coordination. 


Long term...(tuesday through saturday) 
issued at 258 PM CDT Sat Mar 28 2015 


Model agreement in the extended is relatively poor...so forecast 
confidence is correspondingly lower than average. A split flow 
pattern will start off the long term...with the forecast area 
nestled between both active streams. As a result...mainly dry 
weather should carry through much of Tuesday night and Wednesday. 
Some model output indicates the potential that weak southern stream 
energy could aggravate a few showers across southern portions of the 
area late Tuesday night and Wednesday...but chances are very low at 
this point. 


A better chance of showers and thunderstorms is forecast Wednesday 
night and Thursday as northern stream energy begins to influence the 
region with the approach of a cold front. The front is expected to 
stall in the vicinity of the Ohio River as an area of low pressure 
develops over the Central Plains. The approach of the low will keep 
the potential for showers and thunderstorms in the forecast through 
Friday. While still too early for an accurate assessment...severe 
weather certainly cannot be ruled out late week...especially Friday 
with the passage of the low. 


Dry and cooler conditions are expected to return next weekend as 
high pressure builds in. But until then...temperatures Wednesday 
through Friday will be quite warm. Daytime readings should average 5 
to 10 degrees above normal...with nighttime readings some 10 to 15 
degrees above normal. 


&& 


Aviation... 
issued at 648 PM CDT Sat Mar 28 2015 


Clear and calm conditions tonight and early Sunday will likely give 
way to VFR ceilings by around 18z. Southerly winds will also increase 
Sun afternoon into the 10-15 knots range. 




&& 


Pah watches/warnings/advisories... 
Illinois...none. 
MO...none. 
In...none. 
Kentucky...none.
